Cajun Prawn Parcels

prawn parcel

For the last couple of days all I’ve eaten is bread, pasta and cheese which is making me feel a little pudgy around the edges so i’m going carb and cheese free today but i’m certainly not compromising on flavor!

All the ingredients for this meal are from Aldi. I’m using their frozen prawns which i think are great value for money and have become a staple on my shopping list. I’m also loving their Cajun seasoning which gives great flavor not only to these prawns but to chicken and potatoes as well.

Ingredients – Serves 2-3 

  • 360g of cooked prawns (be sure to defrost before cooking) 
  • 2 corn on the cobs, cut into quarters
  • 100g of asparagus tips
  • 1/2 red chili, diced finely (seeds removed)
  • 2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
  • 1 lemon cut into wheels
  • 2 tsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsely
  • 1/2 tbsp of butter per person

Grease proof paper or tin foil is also required.

Pre-heat your oven to 175ºc.

In a mixing bowl add all of your ingredients, except for the butter and mix well.

Cut your grease proof paper or tin foil into rectangles around 40cm by 30cm . 1 rectangle is required per person.

Divide the prawn and corn mixture equally and place in the center of each piece of grease proof paper.

Place 1/2 tbsp of butter in the center of each prawn parcel before sealing the parcels to enclose the filling and arrange on a large baking tray.

Bake for around 10-12 mins until the prawns are piping hot and the vegetables are tender.

Feel free to serve in or out of the parcels. If your going carb free like me then serve with a nice big salad, if not grab a big slice of crusty bread and dunk in that yummy prawn butter…dyl-icious!!
